Hood River, Oregon – Full Sail Brewing Company’s Session and Session Blacklagers were recently honored with gold medals at the 2014 United States Open Beer Championships. According to, these gold medals combined with results from Great American Beer Festival® and rank Session and Session Black #1 in the “Top Ten List of lagers Brewed in the United States.” Session is ranked the #1 American Pilsner, and Session Black is ranked #1 in the Munchner Dunkel category.

“This is such an extraordinary accomplishment. The sophistication and complexity of lager beers highlight a brewer’s skill and passion for quality. Over the years, this passion and commitment to hands-on quality brewing has earned us a long list of over 300 awards and accolades, including 140 gold medals. To be named #1 is a testament to the craftsmanship that comes with our 27 years of brewing. Balance and elegance are our defining brewery characteristics and we’re thrilled to once again earn the highest awards for our beers. We don’t brew our beers to win medals, but we’re honored when we do. Our customers are the ultimate judges and we strive to consistently brew all our beers with them in mind. This is further validation of renowned beer writerJohn Foyston’s declaration that Full Sail is ‘Oregon’s biggest, best lager brewery.’  Thanks to all our beer fans and friends for your ongoing support,” said Jamie Emmerson, Full Sail’s Executive Brewmaster.
